Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Review 2024

Ford Mustang Mach-E GT At A Glance

Honest John Overall Rating
High-performance, sporty styling and a fine driving experience combine with decent practicality and impressive technology in the fully electric Ford Mustang Mach-E GT.

+Looks great. Very fast. Fun to drive. Generous passenger space.

-Expensive. Small boot. Inconsistent steering feel.

Since the Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV is associated with the iconic Mustang sports car, it was inevitable there would be a high performance version. This is it: the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT. But does it live up to the ‘GT’ badge, can it challenge exotic rivals such as the Jaguar I-Pace and Audi Q8 e-tron, and is it worth the extra money over a regular Mustang Mach-E?

Well, the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT certainly looks the part. A different front grille, larger wheels and body-coloured exterior trim give the car a sportier, more assertive look that really appeals. The Ford Performance sports seats look and feel fantastic, too.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E GT has the power to back up its looks. It uses two electric motors to produce a combined 487PS and a thumping 860Nm of torque. The 0-62mph sprint flashes past in just over four seconds, and the ease with which it can overtake other cars, or accelerate onto a motorway, is quite astonishing.

It’s a fun, rewarding car to drive as well. The steering feels a little odd at first, but you soon get used to it and learn that the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT is surprisingly nimble for an SUV, and very trustworthy. The car engages with you, making you feel involved in what’s going on.

The rest of the time, it’s a lovely car to be inside. It’s easy to drive at low speeds and not too big for towns, plus there is an array of parking sensors and cameras. It rides smoothly and quietly, and is very stable on motorways.

Range is a usefully long 304 miles in ideal conditions, so it should manage well over 200 miles reliably in the ‘real world’. Charging times can be pretty quick at a public charging station, although the big 91kWh battery may take a long time to refill at home.

A lot of features are crammed into the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT. The centrepiece is the infotainment system and its 15.5-inch touchscreen display. This offers sat-nav, DAB radio, Bluetooth, wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto phone connectivity and much more.

There’s also a Bang & Olufsen audio system, luxurious Sensico leatherette upholstery, electrically-adjustable and heated front seats, a panoramic glass roof and a heated steering wheel. A large suite of driver assistance features make driving as easy and safe as possible.

You pay a high price for all this, at more than £74,000. That’s the same territory as premium-brand competitors from BMW, Jaguar and Mercedes. Fortunately, the Mustang Mach-E GT’s quality, tech and driving experience live up to the price.

There are more affordable versions of the Ford Mustang Mach-E that are arguably more rational choices, but the looks and performance of the GT version undoubtedly have plenty of appeal.
